810 Reference Video System

The 810 Reference Video System consists of two parts: a powerful 10 megapixel (4096 x 2400) Ultra High Definition projector, unique in the home theatre industry, and a powerful scaler featuring powerful technology that upscales SD and HD sources to this stunning level of resolution for a smooth, flicker-free, cinematic experience. Indeed, the 810 system surpasses even industry Digital Cinema specifications, delivering a level of picture quality that is virtually never experienced outside a film-studio's preview theatre.

Precisely calibrated at Meridian’s dedicated facilities over a period of four days using exclusive calibration technology developed by William Phelps, the projector features separate calibration for SD and HD sources. A series of high performance interchangeable lenses is available: short, medium and long-throw package systems include a motorised 2.35:1 (Cinemascope®) anamorphic lens; a very short-throw package is available for back-projection and simulator applications. The projector is designed to be mounted remotely and is controlled entirely from the scaler via RS232 and a comprehensive on-screen GUI.
